Cantonment Board Peshawar (CBP) on Saturday allotted 32 symbols to candidates for the upcoming elections in four wards.
The move came during a meeting held at the Cantonment Board office chaired by Returning Officer (RO) Saleem Hassan Watoo.
According to CBP spokesman, Watoo allotted election symbols to political parties and independent candidates.
He revealed the Awami National Party’s Khalid Shah, a candidate for Ward-I, has passed away, while an election committee decided that the remaining contenders for the same ward would be allotted symbols on April 17.
He added that Rashida Kausar, a woman candidate contesting from Ward-V as an independent, was given a pressure cooker as her symbol while another independent from Ward-III, Rakhshanda, was allotted a sofa.
